I meant that the reason why i cannot provide a package for mandriva using the opensuse build service is that opensuse build sevice seems to be broken concerning mandrivia 64bit.

So i am thankfull for your package.

I'm confused. I downloaded the most recent version, which is 7.0. First I installed the debian package, but when I opened openBibleViewer and checked the version, it shows version 6. So I downloaded the source version (7.0) and extracted it. It was auto extracted into a 6.0 subdirectory and the contents appear to be version 6.0. What's up?

There was a problem building openBibleViewer 0.7 on Debian 6.0, so there was still only version 0.6 available.
But it's fixed now.

Also the source code is here:

Thanks. I downloaded the source from the link you supplied, and version 7 installed without a hitch.

0.6 looks very promising. If 0.7 comes with SWORD support (as indicated in the changelog on git), that will be great! One question: How can I install TheWord modules, in particular on Linux? The module installer only helps to install Zefania XMl texts.

Small request, but how about an openSUSE 12.1 repo? Thanks and good work! :-)

Jes, 0.7 will come with SWORD support, but you have it enable it on your own. Before compiling you have to enable it with cmake -DOBV_SWORD_SUPPORT=True .. Or use ccmake and change OBV_SWORD_SUPPORT to True.

To add a TheWord module go Settings->Module->Add File and select the .ont or .ot or .nt file of the Module. It will be added to the list of modules.
If you downloaded some modules from TheWord website, you have to install them.

I encourage you to use the lastes version of openBibleViewer e.g the master branch or from here <http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/metaxy:/unstable/> because there are some bug fixes for TheWord.

I hope to release 0.7 before the end of the jear.

Hi,

Nice and simple, appealing app! It works pretty well considering its young age, but there is still a ways to go until it reaches feature parity with BibleTime (this is not to say you can't get there). But I especially like the modular interface. Also, it is the only Zefania App that I know that directly downloads modules.

I was wondering if you had any specific plans in terms of the direction of the development. Are there by any chance plans to support SWORD at some point? I realize Zefania XMl is probably easier to support, but SWORD would just be one more step (and many of the Zefania modules don't work)...

Also, I was wondering what kind of app BibleQuote is, and where I can get modules for that.

Thanks! You are doing a good job!

Thanks for the good comment.
Yes, BibleTime has a lot of very good features. And I am trying to implement some of them.

To be honest, i copied some parts of code and idea for the module downloader from the bibleZ-Project <http://biblez.zefanjas.de/>

Further I am currently rewriting some parts of the code, to make it easier to support more formats. Some days ago I implemented modest support for TheWord modules.
Support for Sword would be no much harder, because of the well written Sword library. I hope I can implement it for 0.6 or 0.7.

BibleQuote is a russian Bible Software with a lot of Books, Dictionarys and Bibles, around 4 GiB. <http://jesuschrist.ru/software/>.

Sounds very promising! I'll check back frequently then.

Could you use any help that a non-programmer (but theology student) could offer?

Also, your website seems down.

I don't know if you know about this (and I don't know how good it is): http://code.google.com/p/dbst/

Toward the bottom, it says that the library "DSword" is there to help SWORD front-end developers out. Incidentally this software also uses Qt4.

(Just thought it might be helpful.)

Have you compiled sources for Windows with VC++ (+ qt 4.6)? It does not work out of box:
I created VC++ 2008 project from .pro and see following:
1. "root path" issue: compiler can not find headers like
#include "src/module/XXXX.h"
I do not touch *.pro, just added path to "Additonal Include Dir" in VC++ solution
2. in src\ui\dialog\searchinfodialog.cpp replace
return floor(number * pow(10, stellen) + 0.5) * pow(10, -stellen);
with
return floor(number * pow(10.0, stellen) + 0.5) * pow(10.0, -stellen);
because compiler can not select righ variant of overlaoded pow
3. comment out last line in src\core\notes.cpp
//#include "moc_notes.cpp"
because code from moc_notes.cpp was compiled twice and it causes linking errors

After this changes build process finished succesfully

I never tried to compile with VC++ :)
So i will commit your changes. But there is still the problem that you have to add the root path manually...
